technology. to remain relevant we need to show impact. we can't wait 5 years. whenever we design, whatever we are doing at c & i now, my staff know that we are designing it to have an impact measure initially. even if it's just a leading indicator, it needs to show something immediately. and the other reason is we can't scale something if we don't know if it works. so that is important to us. we need to be able to test things fail through an indicator if that's what will happen and revise and fail forward again because unless we test it and know it works, we won't scale it. it doesn't make any sense to do that. so, one of the reasons why it's the right tight -- time and the right place to take this on is, this is data that you may know and have, but there are roughly 10,000 districts across the 50 states. in those 10,000 districts, the largest in new york down to 47,000, we are at the smaller percent. that district serves 25 percent of the students and they serve 40 percent of our latino, african americans and under served students. if you are going to make a difference for those kids and ge

pointed out that the parking meter technology was inaccessible, that the meter head was too high if you were in a wheelchair you couldn't read the signs to know how much to put in, how much time you were getting. you needed to be able to grasp a coin and put in a specific coin. some people don't have real grasping use of their hands and fingers, but they can wrap themselves around special knobs on a steering wheel and manage to drive a vehicle with levers and knobs. the idea was make it free because you couldn't easily use the technology. now we've gotten various technology that makes it possible for people to pay by phone, by a smart card, by any number of ways. what we are suggesting is the state law be amended to allow the authorized and local jurisdiction to require meter payment, but if, and only if, the technology is fully accessible. if they're still using the old meter heads that are high and you have to put coins in, that jurisdiction will not be able to use it. san francisco is moving to accessible parking meter technology. i'll add a personal point here. i mentioned earlie
